Do’s & Don’ts of Being Crafty


Do prepare all needed materials before beginning any project.
Don’t start a project at midnight to help you sleep. It’ll just keep you up.
Do put your glasses on your face before you begin.
Don’t put them on the top of your head. You’ll simply look for them for hours!
Do prepare a safe & easy to clean place to create.
Don’t use the livingroom or common room! The kids, or grand-babies will trip over, bump into, or step on your project πŸ™‚ Also, the cat will decide your supplies are his new toys.
Do use the right tool for the job.
Don’t use the right tool at the wrong time. Such as late at night when you can’t sleep.
Do buy quality products (like glues).
Don’t use high quality products (like glues) when sleep deprived. If you do, you may be Googling search terms like: “How to remove hot glue from pet fur”, or “quick pain relief for burns”, or “Can a glue gun start a fire” or ‘Blister relief” or…well you get the picture.

Do preplan or at least think through your project before beginning.
Don’t rush into a project on a “that should or might work” idea.
Do honestly evaluate your personal skill level before beginning.

That’s about it…I’ve gotta run now, shave the cat, bandage some blisters, and figure out how to get the hot glue out of my hair 😦  πŸ˜‰

Cheers!

  1. Loved the post. I can relate to many of these. The glasses on top of the head? Oh yes. I only wear glasses for reading or close up work so I usually wait to get new glasses till the last minute. I knew it was time when I was looking for my glasses and realized I had them on! Ha! πŸ˜‰ Thanks for visiting my blog!
